Symmetrical Felt Sculptures - Workshop by Maria Friese

from Annalisa Chelli - 12/01/2017

Annalisa Chelli


Over the course of this workshop, intended for expert felters, you will explore the ability to create poetic vases (or sculptures) out of felt. Used technique wet-felting. You will learn to develop your individual projects for creating 3D (not sewn) shapes through the use of designs and the creation of samples. This will be the point of departure to create a model that will allow you to form beautiful three-dimensional spaces.

Maria Friese, felt artist and textile designer of considerable experience, will guide you in this creation, giving you suggestions where necessary to create, not only a technically well made piece, but also a true work of art.
